@Milla: I heard from a lot of different people that Transformers is a crappy movie, and you say it's awesome? 8| :| (and no, I haven't seen it)

It still has a great soundtrack though, very epic. :P

I say we lynch Asheera for openly admitting not seeing transformers on cinema let alone dvd. Guilty! :devil:

Saw ultraviolet, not exactly deep or original but it certainly had some cool scenes plus Milla looks hot B-) The thing about this movie is that it's a series of fighting scenes till the middle of the film and then it suddenly slows down when she starts to develop a bond with the boy - perhaps it's that she was emotionally dead before that moment but still. It's a movie that was created to look cool - the glasses, the holographic projection, different clothing for each battle, the printed phone, gravity leveling, equilibrium-like scenes, heck they even added a flaming swords duel - however it lacks in plot and coherency. Entertaining I'd say :D

I enjoyed it, as I watched when I was winding down for the night and just wanted to relax. This movie did not require any thought as to what was going on; Milla had several nicely choreographed scenes. It was just what the doctor order to put me to sleep; I’ll probably watch it again under similar circumstances. :-D

Well I watched the latest Indiana Jones movie last night. Clearly the weakest entry in the series. It was entertaining, and it did have some of the classic Indiana Jones flair at times, but it was just missing something the other movies had. At lot of it just felt a little too contrived, like the whole movie was forced. Though much was said about Harrison Ford being too old for the part, this didn't really both me so much. Actually what bothered me the most was the whole Sci-Fi aspect of the plot. I just didn't feel right to me.

Anyway, it's worth renting because it's Indiana Jones, but don't expect another Raiders.

That was the only thing I didn't like otherwise it was a good movie. Some scenes were priceless though of course exaggerated :)

I have to say, I was also a little surprised by the poor quality of some of the special effects. In some cases it was painfully obvious that bluescreen work had been done.

I hate it when that happens. It's like those old movies when they had a regular screen in the back of the stage, like when our hero drives a car and the road flickers away in the back.

Yeah, I don't get why people don't automatically love this movie (I know I know, tastes differ and whatnot) :D
I quite like the nerdy-guy-gets-the-hot-girl subplot and it's got some of the greatest action in a long time, imo. I recommend it, A ;)

I cannot understand why is that interesting from a female POV.

Because sometimes it's refreshing to see in movies what never happens in real life. ;)

I remeber that the action was something like "giant heaps of metals thrashing about". Not very exciting if there's no way of telling what's happening...
